Hi Debbie, it is getting it from the camera into the programme. I continued to look around for answers at is seems Elements no longer supports capture by firewire and WinDV and HDVSplit might do the job.
Yokes. I have also used Firewire, but have not recently. So You taught me something. Guess I had better update my cables to accomidate downloading using a HDMI config if I update to the 2019 version. Thank's.
